I wanted to do that...Just not alone! Vancouver Message Board › Saturday location confirmation!
Please keep up with the comments and updates on this event's site!
The Laughing Statues are fenced in so they're not accessible, the grass is a mess, and it's too crowded. The Inukshuk is fenced off and the area is used for the television stations.
So ... We have found another location! We will meet at the grass and trees right across from 1519 Beach Ave, where there is also a bus stop (this building is a lovely 3-storey Tudor-type building with window boxes between Nicola and Cardero). We will be between the sidewalk and the bike path (https://www.google.ca....). Look for red and yellow balloons (I would have used the Thai colours, but they're the same as the US, and we wouldn't want anyone to think we're the US embassy!)
As for the rain, the trees will give a lot of protection but the rain isn't here yet and it may only rain at night (if it does at all). Don't worry, we'll figure out a Plan B if necessary. Please monitor the event site and your emails for last-minute updates at 2:00 Saturday!
